Panorama de Barcelona al llarg de 438 anys.AFB. Mark Klett, 2011 (fragment)
US photographer Mark Klett has come up with a novel way to see how Barcelona has changed; by taking historic photos of the city and interposing them on contemporary ones of the same spot to compare the surroundings and discover what's stayed the same (and what's not).
Organised by the Barcelona Photographic Archive and Arqueologia del Punta Vista, this exhibition is the fruit of a workshop that Klett held at the Archive in 2010, called 'Working Across Time: Rephotographing images of place'.
The show includes two panoramic views of Barcelona that the Archive commissioned from Klett, taken from Montjuïc and projects undertaken by the participants in the workshop. There are 39 'rephotographed' images, 44 originals and six old etchings, as well as a virtual exhibition.
To see more of Klett's work, head to the Galeria Tagomago, which is holding a show of his work 'Time Studies', the first indivdual exhibition by Klett in Barcelona. It runs from February 2nd to March 8th. Galeria Tagomago, Santa Teresa, 3 08012 Barcelona
